Everybody seems to have gone big cat crazy after an alleged Lion was seen in Essex (UK). News sites, Facebook and Twitter were a buzz with reports and sightings, several pictures appeared online, but was it really a Lion? A big scruffy domestic cat? Or just a stuffed toy!?

An ocelot, one of the rarest big cats on this side of the world, wandered near a home in Southern Arizona’s Huachuca Mountains Tuesday and sought temporary refuge in a tree to avoid a barking dog.
The cat was unhurt, said the Arizona Game and Fish Department reported, and finally climbed down from the tree after a state wildlife officer had it photographed and recorded the sighting. (The photo above is the actual ocelot, taken by photographer Tony Battiste.)
